|Overview:||As the quantity of content required by AAA games continues to grow, new approaches to structuring this content must be considered in order to quickly build your game without compromising on quality due to memory and performance restraints. This presentation will discuss the technologies developed by Frostbite to support rapid content creation using modular sound design coupled with data inheritance, allowing for a succinct separation between the modeled behavior and the rendered result. This technique was used extensively to deliver the latest games built on Frostbite, including Battlefield 4, Need for Speed Rivals, and most recently, Dragon Age Inquisition. Use-cases from these games will be discussed to provide concrete examples of this approach.|
